China: Students and activists from all over the country held solidarity actions with the Shenzhen workers

Below are images of recent protests and actions, published by our comrades from the site Epoch Pioneer:

Joint solidarity action organized by Solidarity Groups from the Beijing Language and Culture University, Beijing University of Technology, and Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine.

Joint action organized by Solidarity Groups from the Peking University and the Nanjing University.

Protest organized by retired workers and activists in Zhengzhou, Henan in solidarity with the Shenzhen workers.

Action organized by the masses of Shaanxi in solidarity with the Shenzhen workers.
In the statement of the Solidarity Group from the Beijing Language and Culture University, the students wrote: “Chairman Mao teaches us that not to have a correct political orientation is like not having a soul. We refuse to be giant infants in the ivory tower, we refuse to be intellectuals shutting themselves away from the world, we refuse to be golems without their independent wills. We believe that more and more youths would join us and fight with us shoulder to shoulder, together forming a torrent of justice that washes away all shadows of injustice! … The BLCU Solidarity Group solemnly proclaims: we will learn from the indomitable spirit of struggle of the proletariat, dare to struggle, dare to win. We dare to commence the most thorough and resolute struggle against the dark forces of evil, and we dare to fight for the victory of the working class and all forces of justice!”
Students from the University of Nanchang wrote in their statement: “We know, the police in Pingshan, Shenzhen is but a miniature of the massive, evil reactionary force behind it. Marx and Engels said in the Communist Manifesto, ‘the immediate aim of the Communists is the same as that of all other proletarian parties: formation of the proletariat into a class, overthrow of the bourgeois supremacy, conquest of political power by the proletariat.’ Jasic workers’ demand for an union is the first step of the formation of the proletariat as a class. That’s one small step for the Jasic workers fighting for their legal rights, and one giant step for the transformation of the proletariat from the class-in-itself to the class-for-itself.”

Call for global action in solidarity with Mengyu and the Shenzhen workers

Representative of the solidarity group in Shenzhen, excellent young leftist – Comrade Shen Mengyu – was abducted by Pingshan, Shenzhen police using hideous methods. As of August 14th, their status is still unknown.
The foolish and heinous enemy thinks they could use this to stop us and liquidate the solidarity group. These shortsighted cake-eaters were wrong from the beginning – Mengyu has never been fighting alone, and our worker conpatriots aren’t supported by only the solidarity group on site.
We are a whole, we are a team, we are the relentless waves of water, we are the shimmering morning sun in the east.
Our Comrade Mengyu will never capitulate to the enemy: she is fighting in a cruel environment controlled by the enemy. Those of us who haven’t been coerced and isolated must stand together and make our own voices heard.
Those who bring fuel for us in the snowstorm, we cannot allow them to freeze; those who open up the way of freedom through thorns, we cannot allow them to be trapped!
No one can arrest every charging warrior on the path forward, and no one can silent every voice of condemnation! The solidarity group in Shenzhen is now collecting works in solidarity with the two comrades arrested – Mengyu and Hu – all over the world.
We are collecting the following:
1. Write a message to Mengyu, Hu, or what you want to say.
2. Take a picture with placards – you can hide a part of the whole of your faces.
3. Say something, or record a video.
4. Artwork, statue, or other forms of work.
Please send your message, picture, or audio files to
